Job Description

Handle are currently working with a rapidly growing start-up business in the leisure industry, who are looking for a Financial Controller. This is a temp to perm position where the successful candidate will be working closely with the CFO and managing one Accounts Assistant. Although you'll be reporting into the CFO, the CFO wants this person to be the number 1 in finance and be the 'go-to' person for all financial queries.

As this is a new finance function, the Financial Controller will need to be very hands on, and will be trusted with implementing new processes and procedures across the multiple areas. As well as standard monthly financial reporting, you will need to ensure that the transactional, AP/AR processes are running smoothly. As the business continues to grow, you will then take control of the companies budgeting and forecasting process.

This a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious, switched on, qualified accountant to join this exciting company at a period of substantial growth.

To qualify for this role, you must have worked in similar role, in another start-up or SME environment, and have proven ability to implement and improve processes. They're a very relaxed, down to earth, and vibrant bunch so they are looking for a like-minded person to fit in culturally too.

Due to the urgency of this position, only candidates on a short notice period will be considered.

Handle actively welcomes applicants from under-represented backgrounds
